I saw your thread and it seems like ldap plugin works fine in your part.. Do you mind sharing the steps on configuring it? Hehe. Sorry i'm just a newbie in this stuff. Thank you in advance :)
Hi, i installed the ldap plugin, entered the information from my ldap server and thats it.
At which Point do you hang? Error Messages?
After entering the information in the ldap plugin, the users and groups doesn't show up. Then I tried this guide wiki.debian.org/LDAP/NSS and edit the uid/gid number at /etc/login.defs.. Both users and groups shows up when I type the command getent password but only groups in WebGUI hehe. At User tab, it says "Communication Failure"
Sounds that your bind user is invalid... make sure that you enter it like cn=admin,dc=domain,dc=tld or whatever your LDAP Basepath is. Has this user the right permissions in your ldap directory?
and dont forget smbpasswd -W to set the password from your LDAP BIND Account for samba too
Yes, the user is an admin.. but i haven't done the smbpasswd -W part.. will try and check it. Thank you very much
I have tried what you did (install ldap-plugin, fill-up informations, then smbpasswd -W)
Setting stored password for "uid=omv,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=ipa,dc=xxx,dc=xxx,dc=xxx" in secrets.tdb
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
But still, the users and groups doesn't show up in WebGUI.. I think I missed something here.. Hehe. Did you follow this tut? help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/samba-ldap.html
